A small peek into Elon's success..

This short book is a combination of what he's accomplished, what he's trying to accomplish, and what's happened in his personal life. I was hoping for more detailed information on how he made his Billions. The most interesting thing about this book to me was the work he's doing with environmentally safe transportation.

For someone seeking basic knowledge about Elon this is a good place to start. For those wanting an inside look into the mind of a money making genius you won't get it here. I requested this free review copy and have decided to voluntarily leave this review.

Fascinating character study!

If you don’t know much about this man, you will be forgiven for about five more minutes. He is a first rate technological genius and probably a new-age, alien-loving, Marsian wannabe.

Next time you use PayPal or see a Tesla or plan a vacation on another planet, you will have this African dude to thank.

The narration was excellent as always with Kevin Theis.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
